i’m States from Newfoundland. The dimensions are approx. 32 in. wide x 20 in. deep x 22 in. high. All of the edges are metal, and there are metal straps and leather handles. It is covered in a material that is torn in places.
How can I tell if it is leather or canvas? Should the wood beneath it be removed? I’ve seen that I’ve been deciduous with polyurethane. What should I do?

I would leave the trunk as is! So often, it will make it like a reproduction piece. Often times, restoration takes away the character of the piece. Clean the trunk, by gently wiping over it. I would like to display the trunk. Be sure to write down the paper. (03/05/2008)

Josie, I just saw this piece you wrote. I hope you haven't done anything yet. If I should refinish it. Her reply stopped me dead in my tracks. It is a simple way to find out how to travel. Made me re-think all my treasures. Just a different view point. (03/05/2008) p>

I bought a George Burroughs Milons Milwaukee trunk for $ 5. I’m making it a little bit different. The handles are leather. I can tell you how to use it? (05/30/2008)
